Winter Wedding Invitations
When you’re trying to come up with ideas for winter wedding invitations, it can all seem a bit overwhelming. There are so many different things to choose from, and they are so important, that many people get put off designing their own invitations, instead preferring to just pick some from a specialist dealer.
Whilst this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, you are definitely sacrificing some of the uniqueness that is possible with your invites, and you may want to at least try to create your own. They don’t have to be painful to create, and you should be able to enjoy the process, so let’s take a look at just a few tips that will help you create fabulous, and cheap winter wedding invitations.
Firstly consider how the theme of your wedding is going to affect the theme of your invitations. For example, if you’re having a winter wonderland themed wedding, you’re not going to want to use dark colors when it comes to the invitation. You should, by the time you are creating the invitations, know what the overall theme of your wedding is going to be, so you should use the same sort of color scheme.
Once you’ve chosen the color scheme, think of particular motifs that you can use as part of the invitations. For example, use snowflakes if you want the winter wonderland theme, or candy canes if your wedding is Christmas themed. Get creative with these, since they will be the most unique part of your invitation.
Try to give your invitations a luxurious look with a few extra add-ons. For example, gold leaf is a popular choice, especially when you’ve got darker colors on your invitation. If you’ve got lighter colors, try to use some silver to brighten it up and frame your invites.
The paper you use for your invitations is also hugely important. You’re going to want to use high quality paper that feels fairly heavy to the touch. This is essential in creating a sense of luxury about your invitations, and also continuing the theme (light paper for summer weddings, heavy paper for winter weddings).
Another thing to consider is how you are going to package your winter wedding invitations. Use ribbons and bows effectively to make your envelopes “pop”, instead of just leaving them blank. You can also try to make sure the calligraphy on the invitations is absolutely perfect, although this may take some time.
Overall, winter wedding invitations aren’t that difficult. You should try and keep your invitation as simple but elegant as possible, because it means you’re less likely to make a mistake.
A simple invitation with a beautifully crafted message, on high quality paper, and with some classy motifs, will create a real impression and also be relatively inexpensive. You don’t have to spend hours searching around for the materials, just think about what is going to fit with your theme and remain elegant.
